Between both is a dining area with table that seats eight.

Further details

The outdoor pool is not heated and therefore ideally used from mid May til early October, weather permitting.

Further details outdoors

The private and large secure gardens are fantastic for all ages with large swimming pool away from the house, with pool safety fencing, a requirement in France. There is also a fully enclosed 12' trampoline, and a table tennis table, both enjoyed by children and adults alike!The garden is full of fruit and nut trees, which can be enjoyed by guests when in season, as well as offering a good choice of trees for climbing.

Location description from owner

The Midi-Pyrénées region

The hamlet nestles in the foothills of the Pyrenees with Andorra and the higher Pyrenees within easy access. The medieval market town of Mirepoix is closeby with its cathedral and 14th Century timber framed buildings surrounding the main square, as is the bustling town of Pamiers with full amenities and services.

The majestic Pyrenees are to be seen in the distance, making a fantastic backdrop to the setting of the village. The Ariege benefits from hot summer months, warm early spring and late autumn and beautiful snowfall in the winter.

Mirepoix

10 minutes from the medieval town of Mirepoix with its vibrant weekly market and specialist antique, craft, flower and apple fairs throughout the year. 40 minutes from the ancient walled city of Carcassonne with its fairytale spires and newer bastide with markets in the central square on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

20 minutes from Foix with its medieval hilltop castle, charming town centre with markets, restaurants and cafe bars and largest underground cave in Europe. 25 minutes from the stunning Lac Montbel with its beach areas for swimming, picnics and boat/pedalo hire. 1 hour 30 minutes from the Spanish border through Cathar country with breathtaking hilltop ruins. 1 hour to the bottom of the nearest ski slopes at Mont D'Olmes and Aix-les-Thermes with fantastic mountain biking out of ski season.

Easy access to the principality of Andorra. 1hour 15 minutes from Narbonne Plage with its extensive Mediterranean beaches.

“Lovely quiet and time to reflect”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

I stayed here with mates and it was fab. I was looking to relax and have some down time. We did have kids with us and they loved the pool so much they hardly got out! Mirepoix is lovely and some nice places to eat. Would say go there and enjoy !!

“Shabby chic holiday home”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2012

We had a lovely holiday in this house. The owner and the local friend who grants access were both super-friendly and helpful. The house is in a hamlet (the neighbouring houses and gardens are very close by) but it is driving distance to all amenities - it's several miles even to the local bakery, so bear this in mind if you like to stroll for your morning baguette or evening meal! The house is charming and certainly historic. It's comfortable and clean. The furnishings and furniture are rustic and some are a little worn. The pool is large and very well-maintained but even in early July our kids found it cold as it's not heated. The washing machine malfunctioned while we were there, but the local contact fixed it that day. Bikes were also provided for us, including childrens' bike and seat. The countryside location means that there's no wifi (and very limited phone reception) plus plenty of flies, ants nests in the lawn etc. It takes well over an hour to get to the closest beach, but there is a lake about half an hour away where you can swim (but the beach is tiny). The house can feel chilly which is great on a hot day, but not so good in the evenings or if it's rainy - although there's a working log fire and plenty of wood.
